There does not seem to be any one tag covering all of data dredging. The tags I can find are [p-hacking], [stepwise regression], [feature selection] and [model selection]. Are there any other tags that one should look at when looking for Q&As on this topic?

    $\begingroup$ I'm not aware of a specific [data-dredging] tag. Those tags seem decent. You could also just search on "dredging" & some synonyms, when looking for relevant threads. $\endgroup$ Dec 8, 2023 at 12:30
  • $\begingroup$ Another phrase I found useful after posting the q was "post-selection inference". Often that brings up methods to avoid data dredging, but the discussion of dredging in those is useful. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Depending on the question, [multiple-comparisons] might be OK, possibly [ethics] too (though this one has not a lot of questions yet). $\endgroup$
